6. Horns & Things, Downtown@Dusk at the Akron Art Museum. Chuck and I had a great time listening to music and people-watching. 7. Yes, Kirby, there are three groundhogs under there. 8. Scratching an itch on the shed. 9. Too darned hot for this chickie. 10. Monster storm coming in. Fifteen minutes after a serious downpour, the sun was back out. 11. Big, puffy, gorgeous August clouds. 12. Lucky me - spotted a kestrel taking off from the roof, and he stayed in this dead tree long enough to have his picture taken.
